ZAMBIAN Breweries has commended the Government’s approval of the National Alcohol Policy and pledged its support towards enforcement of regulations to ensure that the production, sale, distribution and consumption of alcohol are done in a responsible manner.
“Zambian Breweries supports the new policy and we are delighted it has been framed with the support of all stakeholders in the industry and community,” said country director Jose Moran. “We are willing to go the extra mile to support the roll-out of this important initiative, and be the champions from the private sector in its implementation.”
Zambian Breweries praised the policy for recognising the value of formal players in the industry and their role in society and the economy. The policy is particularly encouraging given that it is based on extensive consultation and research and takes into account the wider root causes of alcohol abuse.
